Catalogue Note

Web Goodwin, the former editor of The Pewter Collectors Club of America Bulletin, began collecting in the early sixties and was active until his passing. Every good pewter collection should have a Richardson sugar bowl. Considered the finest of the nineteenth century pewter designs; one is pictured on the front piece of Kerfoot’s American Pewter. A colleague of many pioneering scholars and dealers, Web created the single best collection of Newport pewter in existence today, now owned by The Preservation Society of Newport; exhibited at Hunter House. His diverse collection became one of the most significant in America. Web Goodwin was known for the fine condition of his pewter, which is true here.

For a similar example by Richardson with a slightly different finial, see Kerfoot's American Pewter, fig. 306.
